One of my favorite things about being an artist is, honestly, being part of the artist community as a whole. I have made so many dear artist friends over the years, and we support and encourage and challenge each other every day. We also occasionally do art swaps because we all love each other and want each other's art but are broke and can't afford such a luxury. Or, in this case, the swap was art for shipping costs. Not too bad considering the art came from the wildly talented Taylor Dolan.

Obviously, when Taylor posted that she wanted to clear out some art stuff and send it to new homes, I jumped on that immediately. I'm a big fan of the Abhorsen series, so she sent me some of the stuff she drew based on it (above photo). I can't wait to get them framed and hang them up and show off my love of dark, creepy things.

I honestly can't say that Taylor has drawn anything I don't absolutely love, but I'll show you a few of my favorites.

I've never seen anything quite like the magic that Taylor makes, and I could not be more thrilled to be the new owner of some of that magic. If you want to own the magic too, you should check out Taylor's Society6 shop. I promise you won't be disappointed.

Thanks again, Taylor!
